one week after president obama called immigration reform a top priority, the issue was cornering momentum in a rare show of bipartisan support. >> there is more political risk in opposing immigration reform began supporting it. >> this is consistent with their country's tradition of being a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. >> eight leading republican and democratic senators are proposing an immigration overhaul. it would create a path to a system -- path to citizenship. reform the legal immigration system to keep families together, " ward green cards to immigrants who obtain advanced degrees at american universities. allow more low-skilled workers to enter the country for hard to fill jobs. >> there is no reason to delay. >> the proposal mirrors the president's priorities. >> the very important effort is about engaging the american people. >> advocates are pressuring lawmakers to act. >> we now the momentum is on our side. >> that momentum comes after a tough reaction -- election reality. he won more than 70% of the latino vote. even with bipartisan support, passing the
troops to decide the issue for themselves. congress is sending a bill to president obama for his signature for super storm sandy. the measure is aimed primarily at helping residents and businesses as well as state and local government rebuild from the late october storm. the storm is blamed for billions of dollars of property damage. it doesn't seem like it was that long ago. >> it doesn't. if you're up there suffering, it seems like forever. >> that weather in new orleans makes you really want to be there. if you're going down later this week, say you have plans to be there just for the weekend, it is going to get a little bit cooler. you might want to factor that into your packing plans. there is going to be a little front going through. it is not going to be brutal by any stretch. the weekend forecast basically, highs in the 60's. nighttime lows in the 40's. if you're going down there for the weekend, you might neat a sweatshirt. minimal chance of a shower. of course ideal conditions for the game on sunday. it was chilly today. freezing this morning at 30. then the late evenin
of your fox 5 on time traffic. >> all right. thanks. president obama says the nation has issued a call to action for congress to tackle the issue of immigration reform. praised leaders for coming up with a framework. but there's a lot to do before meaningful changes can be achieved here. for more on that topic, we turn to our team after experts peter fenn and while jim is away we welcome back phillip stuts. one of the thing we want to start off is the issue of sequestration. we have bigger fish to fry. is that how things are ending up? >> well, you just talked about immigration. this is the biggest issue of the day for our country. so i'm a republican, but i'm disappointed that we're punting the ball down the field. disappointed in president obama that he's punting the ball down the field for a long time. i don't understand why they can't figure this thing out. seems to be consistent with what congress seem to be able to do. >> what happens if you don't go with sequestration is you have to make the tough decisions and that compromises a hard thing to do in a month. and initially the re
are so extreme on these issues, paul ryan is sending the message that it is actually president obama that is extreme and not dealing with these issues. i think that is the message that they are sending. dagen: do you think that the state of the union address will take on those critics and address it? it would certainly have to with the president skipping over it in the inaugural speech. >> you would think it would have to be specific. however, we thought you would have to address the issues after the 2010 shellacking, in the president's words, when the republicans took over the control. the president spent very little time on entitlement reform. i think it will be interesting to see. i think you see the choice that this administration makes. dagen: i fixated on longer-term interest rates. that, again, is how much it cost this country to borrow from around the world. look at that ten year yield today. it is back above 2%. that will be the thing that forces lawmakers to act. >> that is the thing that everyone is fixated on. how the federal reserve has fixated into this, i mean, these r
latino voters voted for barack obama, the democrat,2012. there's your connection. >> so it's a big issue around the country but especially i would imagine the numbers back it up for us in california in terms of illegal immigration and arizona. >> reporter: it gets heavy here. even more significantly nationwide california has 12% of the nation's population. a quarter, by the way, a quarter of the nation's illegal immigrants. 80% of that group are latinos. overall latinos are 38% of the state. the largest ethnic block in california and latinos were 23% of the state's voters in 2012. that's up from 10% in 1990. add to it, 75% of all california latino 0s voted for obama. those are the same numbers that helped to pass proposition 30. so the bottom line is this. whether in california or in other areas across the nation, republicans have a choice. if they hope to attract more whites from a group getting smaller and smaller or reach out to minorities on their issues, and that's what is up front. >> it is a big issue for the republican party. thank you, layrry. >>> close the tax loop on the wealt

. let me go to you, mr. lapierre. president obama has issued 23 executive actions on gun violence. can you discuss the commonality between your organization, the nra, and the obama administration when it comes to finding ways to reduce gun violence? >> what we think works, he is what nra has done historically. we do more of which we put more money in. reese support of enforcing the laws on the books 100% of the time. that works. we have supported prison bill and spirit we have states like california where, more than any other state in the country, they send more inmates back in the street and more inmates back in jail for new crimes against their citizens than any other kind -- stayed in the nation. -- states in the nation. -- state in the nation. nra has always supported what worked. -- works. the innocent are being preyed upon. the statistics are numbing. the 911 calls are horrible. at the scene of the crime, it is the criminal and the victim. victims all over the country want to be able to protect themselves. this whole debate almost puts it in two different categories. if you are i
towards what's been a bitterly divided issue. the push is on as president obama calls for quick passage of immigration reform. >> we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. we have been debate thing a very long time. >> a golden ticket to life for a better life for my family. >> reporter: choosing nevada to unveil his plan where latinos make up close to 30% of the population, proposal includes a path to citizenship. >> if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> reporter: undocumented immigrants would have to register with the federal government and pay bonds and back taxes, undergo background checks but not before increased border security can be proven. illegal immigrants would receive green cards only after every lawful applicant has gone lou the process we shouldn't be rewarding those who violate the law. >> reporter: the president's re-election with 70% of the latino vote has resulted in a shift towards compromise. but some who watch the speech fe

community that they're going to deal with this issue. >> it's a significant voting bloc. >> huge. >> that was shown to be the case this past election. >> and obama won 71% of them. so republicans are going to try to get some of those voters back. you're going to see bipartisan deal on this issue. >>> quite a day for divers today. they will try to find a small plane in icy waters of new york's hudson river. rescuers rushed to the shore last night when a man and woman were brought to safety. their single engine plane crashed into the river, but they were able to escape before it sank. they were hospitalized in fair condition. >>> with that, a quick look at your monday weather. the freezing rain in new york city will switch to plain rain by the afternoon. minneapolis will see freezing drizzle most of the day. heavy snow for the mountains of utah, colorado and idaho. >> temperatures are much warmer than usual in the nation's midsection. st. louis hit 70. seattle is rainy and cool in the mid-40s. 60s in phoenix and l.a. >>> impressive works of art will be on display for another week i
. this is a major issue. we heard about this during the bush term but didn't come to fruition. obama promised in 2008 but didn't get to it. and one of the gang of eight said first american supported in poll after poll. secondly, latino voters expect it. thirdly, democrats want it. and fourth, republicans need it. so an interesting analysis of why it's coming to a head. >> the gang of eight, i love that they're calling them the gang of eight. >> their plan will be announced later today. >>> now to the latest on that terrible nightclub fire in brazil. investigators say most of the victims died from smoke inhalation as flames engulfed the club. the mayor has declared 30 days of mourning as families make burial arrangements. we spoke earlier to the bbc's julia carnero. >> reporter: lots of witnesses are speaking out about how it was a desperate situation for them trying to get out, not being able to see far because of the smoke, and on top of that, some witnesses have said that actually security guards stood in their way in the beginning, because there was lots of confusion. they didn't understan
to figure out how many gallons spilled into the river. >>> it's one of the key issues president obama wants to tackle in his second term, immigration reform. now it seems the president may be getting a little help from a group of bipartisan senators who will unveil their immigration proposal today. here's how one of those senators, new jersey democrat robert menendez, summed up the likelihood the legislation will pass. >> first of all, americans support it in poll after poll. secondly, lat sin no voters pet it. third, the democrats want it. fourth, the republicans need it. >> joining me now is congressman steve israel of new york, chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> is menendez right? >> yes, he is right. and, look, we now have two of the three elms necessary to pass immigration reform. you've got a bipartisan group of senators, on the left and the right, who support immigration reform and will unveil their plan. you've got the president of the united states who will unveil his plan in las vegas tomorrow. now all we need are
. giffords is also expected to make a short statement. >> another key issue is immigration reform. president obama called for swift action. >> the idea that i'm proposing have traditionally been supported by both democrats like ted kennedy and republicans like george w. bush. you don't get that matchup very often. the question is very simple. do we have the resolve as a people, as a country, as a government to finally put this issue behind us? i believe that we do. >> one of the main provisions in the plan puts up to 11 million illegal immigrants on a clear path to citizenship. it's interesting. some republicans were upset with the president because they're saying he's not talking about a prerequisite, border security first before they grant this path way to citizenship. >> this won't be the last conversation on that. >> that's right. i agree. >> plenty more to follow. >>> senator john kerry has been confirmed to be the next secretary of state. the senate overwhelmingly affirmed kerry's nomination. 94-3 vet yesterday. he served as chairman of the senate foreig
, that obama has found a soulmate on the issue of war. so with hagel as defense secretary, even though he served certainly during vietnam, a republican, what does it mean for american engagement in the world in the next four years? >> that it's going to be done in a much more careful way. clearly in my research on the first book i did on obama in talking with the president about the war in afghanistan, he, like hagel, has an aversion to war. he'll go to war, but in obama's famous nobel prize acceptance speech he made it very clear that war may be necessary, but it's always a manifestation of human folly. >> and the secretary of state john kerry has said they need to get the economic house in order as a first priority for national security. but look at syria and look at iran. where does the secretary -- the secretary of defense nominee and the president stand on iran? >> well, they're going -- you know, the policy is to prevent iran from getting the bomb. that is the most difficult policy to execute. it's not matter of containment. it's a matter of staffing it, whether that's going to be e
two workers were killed at the research center and five others were wounded. >>> president obama says he wants final immigration reform, a deal done in six months. during an interview, the president said it could even be done sooner because no major issue is standing in the way. eight senators, four democrats, four republicans have agreed on a framework when it comes to immigration reform. it would include a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country. >>> a dictionary and these sawyer reduce to lead to the mistrial of a former culpeper police officer found guilty of manslaughter. he was convicted tuesday of shooting and killing patricia cook. the jury foreman disobeyed the judge's instructions and brought in dictionaries and a that sawyer reduce during deliberations. prosecutors say the verdict should stand. the defense want as new trial. the verdict at this point remains up in the air. >>> how should d.c. spend its $417 budget surplus. if councilman marion barry has his way, it would be used to improve services for the city's disadvantaged people
analysts say that's a sign the obama administration doesn't see the closing of the prison as a top priority. he will be the coordinator for a sanctions policy and working on issues including iran and syria. >>> right now, president obama is on air force one heading to nevada where he will push his immigration reform message. as kyla campbell reports from washington, d.c., he's expected to press for more liberal policies. kyla? >> reporter: we just got off the phone with the white house. officials there tell us there are two key differences between the president's ideas and the legislation unveiled by the so- called gang of 8 bipartisan senators. the president wants more security for our borders. but he doesn't think that requirement should have to be met before the 11 million illegal immigrants begin obtaining residency. he wants provision for same-sex couples trying to become residents. the gang of 8 unveiled legislation yesterday. the group of democrats and republicans want the border security first and the path to citizenship second. they did not include same-sex rights with their plan.
. >>> many in washington are still reacting to president obama's immigration speech in las vegas yesterday where he said now is the time to fix what he called a broken system. republicans are only willing so far to compromise on the issue. nbc's tracie potts joins us live. >> reporter: hi, mara. good morning. now on capitol hill begins the process what could be a tedious process of sorting out what is is different for the president's proposal after the speech yesterday and also with the bipartisan group of lawmakers, democrats and republicans came up with the broad principles here appear to be the same. beefing up the borders and the pass to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. but neither plan has full details at this point. and it raises a lot of questions, for example, how long will this immigration process take? lawmakers want to make sure border security happens first. the president did not mention that. so that could make a difference in how long it actually takes to get this path to citizenship under way. the other big issue, same-sex immigran
this issue in general that the white house will welcome. president obama met on friday or spoke on friday, i should say, with the congressional hispanic caucus. that was ahead of what he's doing tomorrow. he's already put out his immigration plan but he's trying to build support for it, highlight it. he will head to las vegas to get that going tomorrow. but his plan, i will tell you, is similar to the senate plan. but there are some key differences and they have to do with that pathway to citizenship. we're expecting to learn more about exactly what the differences are. but the pathway to citizenship and also border security. as you heard dana mention there, ashleigh, these are the hottest of the hot button issues. so these differences are really something to pay attention to as we t get more details. >> maybe somewhat as dana had written in some notes earlier, somewhat of an insurance policy in case this current proposal doesn't get traction. i want to switch gears only because we have you there standing in the rain. there is going to be a flurry of activity and, again, the issue of gun con
cell yes met with president obama today. giffords told congress tod65r at now. >> gun safety advocates and the national rifle association squared off on this issue. mark? >> the senate is considering and today, both sides ofk(x the debate were represented at that hearing. first, gabby giffords in a senate hearing the appearance was brief but powerful. >> speaking is difficult but i need to say something important. v congress woman shot in the head two years ago, made an appeal for action. >> too many children are dying. too many children. we must do something. >> the murder of 20 school;xÑ children reignited the debate, today, in what will be a long battle over efforts to strengthen background checks on purchases and renew a ban on assault weapons. and told senators background checks would be a waste of time and money. >>zyn: you'll create an enormos federal bureaucracy, unfunded. they'll have to go through it. >> saying criminals won't go through background check autos criminals won't go to purchase gauns because there will be a background check. you miss that had point. i think it'
divisive issues in the nation. on friday, vice president biden officially kicked off the obama administration's public push aimed at pressuring congress to enact stiffer gun laws. biden held a round table discussion in the traditionally gun-friendly area of richmond, virginia. >> we talked about the need to expand mental health capacity across the country. we talked about access, and we talked about resources. >> reporter: and in an effort to sway legislators through public pressure, organizing for action, obama's relaunched campaign arm, is sending out emails to supporters writing, "tell your members of congress that you want to see decisive action on this issue." in addition to 23 executive actions focused on gun safety, the president has also called for new legislation including universal background checks, limits on high-capacity magazines, and a ban on assault weapons. this past week, california democratic senator dianne feinstein proposed a ban that would be more restrictive than the one that expired a decade ago. >> this is really an uphill road. if anyone asked today ca
willingness both in congress and the president to tackle this issue. >> i know the obama administration has had really high number of those who they actually deported. does the community, mexican american community think they adequately address that, they're not going after folks to bring them back to mexico? there there was a lot of people who were complaining to the administration because the president said, i'm going to solve the immigration problem once and for all. and the reality is that about 1.6 million people were deported from the country. but reality is, on the other side of the aisle, the republican rhetoric didn't do a much better with talk about self-deportation and making life in the united states so miserable to immigrants that they would have no other choice but to leave the country. and that's probably the reason why president obama got more than 70% of the hispanic vote. >> thank you. appreciate it. of course the push for immigration reform is gaining momentum. but some of the critics say not so fast. want to bring in joe arpaio of maricopa county, arizona. good to see yo
